More monovalve questions for 87 300D

I think I have this issue under control, but just wanted to doublecheck I'm taking the right course of action. My monovalve has entirely quit at this point, in that I get 12v to it but still have constant heat. I tried supplying 12v to the pins myself and get no sound. I have a spare used monovalve on my shelf, I think also from am 87 300D, and when I put 12v to that, I get a substantial click. Can I assume that the coil in my monovalve is kaput? So the whole unit needs to be replaced? Or is the lack of any noise possibly due to the valve being stuck ... in which case I could rebuild it I suppose (I noticed via a search that a lot of people rebuilt them).
In either case, is there any reason not to use the used one I have? It seems to work electronically and I thought I could just swap it in and see if it works.
